Meghalaya: Indigo flight to operate from Umroi Airport from July 20 next

Indigo will start operating its flight from Umroi airport near Shillong in Meghalaya to Kolkata from July 20 next.

This was informed by Meghalaya transport minister, Sniawbhalang Dhar after he inspected ongoing works at Umroi Airport in Ri-Bhoi district.
He informed that another aircraft would be also operated later from Umroi to Raipur via Kolkata.

Asked about expansion of Umroi airport, Dhar expressed doubt whether the airport can be expanded or not since huge amount is required to upgrade the airport for landing of big aircraft.

Umroi airport has not been fully functional till date, and only small aircrafts are being operated

Dhar said that according to a report, it is not feasible to upgrade the airport because of some obstacles and discussion is on about building a new airport that requires less expenditure.
